Epub 2016 Oct 20.In contrast to hydrogenated based systems that led to many studies, fluorinated surfactants have been little reported. Thanks to their high chemical and thermal stability, these compounds are considered as suitable candidates for the synthesis of porous materials with an enhanced hydrothermal stability. This study reports the synthesis of a new fluorinated surfactant, 2-trifluoromethyl-7,7,8,8,9,9,10,10,11,11,12,12,12-tridecafluoro-4-thia-1-dodecanoic acid (FSC) obtained from the thiol-ene radical addition of 3,3,4,4,5,5,6,6,7,7,8,8,8-tridecafluoro-1-octanethiol onto 2-trifluoromethyl acrylic acid in 85% yield.
